    Hello All,

    I have a dedicated server which I have virtualized with ESXi 5.0 . In the VPS ( CentOS 5.7 64 bit ) when I do install cPanel with the help of the documentation, it always installs the Accelerated 2 edition, which I have learnt is meant for dedicated server not VPS es.

    I want to install the VPS optimized edition. Can anyone help me how to force installation of cPanel VPS Optimized on the VPS?

    How does cPanel detect if it should install as Acc. or VPSO. ? Do I have to install ESXi 5.0 tools into the VPS in order to achieve this?

    Thanks!

    Hi camelian77,

    Virtual machines based upon ESX/ESXi can be treated as virtual dedicated server. This could be one of the aspect why cPanel might not be offering optimized version. Have a look at System Requirements - cPanel Inc.

    Hi there,

    It doesnt matter which version it installed, after you purchase a licence, run /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt as root on your VPS and log into your WHM again, you will notice that you are running VPS Optimized.

    Regards

    I managed to install the VPS Optimized version via:

    1. using cPanel provided CentOS

    2. using ESXi version 4.1 in the options of creating new VPS.
